7 principles of an evangelistic life

  1. 1. Source: Author: Douglas M. Cecil Complied by: EvangelismCoach.org
  2. 2. Principle #1 Keep Your Priorities Straight There is a great commandment before there is a great commission. You may have the slickest method, the slickest presentation, and be the most silver-tongued person around; but if your relationship with Jesus Christ is out of focus, evangelism is out of balance.
  3. 3. Principle #2 Evangelism is an Event in the Process of Disciple Making There is a proper time for cultivation, a proper time for sowing, and a proper time for harvesting.
  4. 4. Principle #3 Make the gospel clear. With both biblical and empirical evidence, Paul declares the Good News. The Gospel, the Good News, is: Christ died for my sins and arose from the dead
  5. 5. Principle #4: Evangelism is more spiritual than methodological. The question in evangelism is not how you can get better equipped or find the newest and latest method of sharing the Good News. The main question in evangelism is, What’s holding you back? If you have placed your trust in Jesus Christ, because of the ministry of the Holy Spirit in your life, sharing Jesus Christ is a passion.
  6. 6. Principle #5: Being a good witness means passionately pursuing the lost in love. Being a good witness is being salt and light in a tasteless and dark world by living by grace and truth. Being a witness is more involved in cultivating relationships and sowing seeds in the process of disciple making. Being a witness is passionately pursuing the lost in love and being intimately involved with people.
  7. 7. Principle #6: Evangelism moves forward as God’s people get involved in ministry and service Evangelism moves forward as God’s people get involved in ministry and service. If I am able to get my people involved in service, and they give themselves away in ministry, evangelism will take care of itself.
  8. 8. Principle 7: Disciple, nurture, and assimilate new believers into the church Follow-up is the process of establishing a believer in the faith. Notice two things about this definition. First, follow-up is a process and not just an event. We never arrive in follow-up. Secondly, the person being followed up may or may not be a new believer. There are a lot of people sitting in our pews who have never effectively been followed up.
